What happens in 2014, stays in 2014 (or not)

As per me being a person of things happening right on time (not), my 2014 round-up is happening in 2015. I'm assuming you're not judging me too harshly.

  • January 10th my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I wrote a post all about that here. This January 10th, she's healed. Like totally healed. Boom. Jesus works miracles. (You can read her thoughts on this whole journey right here.)

I drew this for her a few days after the diagnosis:

And drew this one a whole year later:

  • I started a little hand lettering print shop! My Choose Brave Shop has been a blast this year, and I've learned a lot about myself in the process, one of them being I hate business and taking money and sending emails and would much rather lock myself away and do the art portion all day long.  (Read an intro to the shop here.)



  • I started to design t-shirts and tank tops for Hashtag Hope. This was a joy for me.

  • I read more books than I can count. Favourite author of 2014: Rainbow Rowell.
